Dr. Reddy is a Distinguished Professor, Regents’ Professor, and inaugural holder of the Oscar S. Wyatt Endowed Chair in Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University. Dr. Reddy earned a Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics in 1974 from University of Alabama. He worked as a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Texas Institute for Computational Mechanics, the University of Texas at Austin, a Research Scientist for Lockheed Missiles and Space Company in Huntsville, and taught at the University of Oklahoma, Virginia Tech, and Texas A&M University.
Dr. Reddy’s research has involved the development of refined theories and finite element analysis of problems in composite structures, fluid dynamics, and biology and medicine. His shear deformation plate and shell finite element models have been implemented into commercial finite element computer programs like ABAQUS, NISA, and HyperForm. He is the author of over 500 journal publications and 18 textbooks with nearly 40,000 citations and h-index of 77 (Google search). http://www.tamu.edu/acml
